Mourinho confirms young players who will start against Crystal Palace

With nothing riding on Sunday's game for either United or Palace, who are assured of avoiding relegation, Mourinho believes it should have been moved forward a day.

"I will be picking a team that I think will perform well".

He again fielded an under-strength XI in Wednesday's 0-0 draw at Southampton, omitting Marcus Rashford, Michael Carrick, Ander Herrera, Paul Pogba and David De Gea, as goalkeeper Sergio Romero's performance earned them a draw.

Mourinho told his prematch news conference: "Paul [Pogba] is fine, a strong guy, a strong mentality". He is learning how to live after his father passed away but he is strong and he knows he needs to play next Sunday because he doesn't play, train for a long time and he needs these minutes on the pitch.

He said: "We will have two keepers, Joel Pereira and Kieran O'Hara, and we will have Demetri Mitchell, Scott McTominay, Matty Willock, Josh Harrop, Angel Gomes, Zachary Dearnley, Axel Tuanzebe, so lots of them". A problem for the weekend but not for the final.

Senator: Trump Russia investigation appears to be criminal investigation
Mr Trump wrote , ignoring impeachment efforts and blistering verbal attacks on previous presidents and other political leaders. Republican Senator Jason Chaffetz also said in a tweet that Mueller was a great selection with "impeccable credentials".

Having grabbed the EFL Cup in February, United face Ajax next Wednesday in the final of the Europa League and punters might fancy using their free bet to back the English side to claim the trophy for the first time in their history. His feelings are not bad but let's wait.

"He had little matches where the performances were not so good, but normally the performance is related to the team, so when the team was very good, he was very good".

Mourinho also said that defender Eric Bailly picked up a minor injury but was not too concerned about the 23-year-old who is ineligible for the Europa League final after being sent off in the semi-final.

"So I think it's a bit unfair".

"We trained with 24 players today, with no one injured so instead of looking at United, I look at my team". It will be a big occasion but I think the best for the young player is in the middle of an experienced structure, where he can be supported. For the players as well because they've got good bonuses for the position they finish in the league so they are well aware of what it means. Wayne Rooney's reputation may be in decline in England, but he appears to remain by some distance their favourite player at least, given the way they cheered his every touch.
